    Bora Bora, the Pearl of the Pacific

    Bora Bora...a name which evokes a place that is already close to being considered as "paradise". I actually had the chance to go there for a week; sailing in one of the world's most beautiful lagoons, enjoying the marvelous views, and of course, taking lots of pictures.

    Discovering the Marquesas archipelago (part 4): Ua Huka

    After visiting Nuku Hiva and Hiva Oa, we finally landed on the last island of our Marquesas trip, Ua Huka. We decided to spend 3 days on this very small island as everybody told us that it was the most magic and wild one, absolutely different from all the other islands. And indeed, we really made a trip "into the wild".....

    A Bit of Wild Life in the Peruvian Coast

    Paracas is a small city but it has a lot to offer around. I went on a trip to the Islas Ballestas to see the sea lions and visited the Reserva National de Paracas.

    Fraser island, underneath the Aboriginal stars

    We, Daphne & Anna, spent 3 days on Fraser island and were blown away. It's an ecological wonderland at the east coast of Australia, like nowhere else on earth. Aboriginals call it K'Gari, meaning paradise. We really understand why now!

    Boattrip for One: Puerto Montt to Puerto Natales, Chile

    By now, my family and friends know that I am quite the intrepid traveler. But back in 2002, when I told them I had booked myself a plane ticket to Argentina, they declared me insane. Nonetheless, I took off with nothing more than a travel guide and a vague plan. Little did I know that plan would take me on what was, still is and always will be the most beautiful trip of my life. Right to the end of the world!

    Eyespotting Borawan Island

    In the small, rural town of Padre Burgos in Quezon Province, one can find an island getaway, unknown to many, called Borawan. The name itself was coined from the popular Boracay Beach and Palawan. As the locals and some reviews would say, this small side beach haven is a combination of both.
